FEATURE ARTICLES. THE POLITICS OF PREJUDICE. PT 1.


Supreme Court Building, Supreme Court

If There is one thing we can Take from Recent National Political Campaigns, it is that PREJUDICE, IN ALL ITS FORMS, STILL SHOWS US WHY THE REAL STUMBLING BLOCK TO CAMPAIGN REFORM IS THE VOTER, NOT THE POLITICIAN.

It is still Amazing how Supporters of a Candidate, WILL STILL USE THE SAME TIRED EXCUSES TO JUSTIFY THEIR SUPPORT FOR A PARTICULAR INDIVIDUAL OR PARTY, EVEN WHEN IGNORANT OR IRRATIONAL COMMENTS ARE MADE PUBLIC.

For Example:

 "(HE OR SHE) IS JUST SAYING WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK."

-  Really, and this ASSERTION IS ARRIVED AT BY....WHAT?
Maybe we should just take Their Word for it.


"(HE OR SHE) IS NOT SCARED TO TELL THE TRUTH.  OTHER
POLITICIANS ARE AFRAID TO."

-  So this Politician and Supporters are MIND READERS, and can
Ascribe MOTIVATIONS TO RIVALS who do not Voice Similar 
Opinions.


"THEY GIVE A VOICE TO THE DISENFRANCHISED VOTER, WHO
BELIEVE THEIR CONCERNS ARE BEING IGNORED."

Please Give me an Example of any Important and\or Divisive Issue
that does not have any Politicians or Pacs Championing One Side
or the Other, Deliberately Ignoring a Specific Segment of the Population.

END PT 1.
